Quote from fighting_blindly :
Do these use the same filters as the 5300 I bought? For some reason I hear the 5300 filters are easier to find (both OEM and Third party) but the ones for this one aren't. They look substantially the same. Do you HAVE to use the washable carbon filter? Or can you use the 5300 one? So this is the one I bought last time.

yes same HEPA, but not the carbon.. I use tape to attach the washable carbon filter to the 5300 .

Thanks for posting this! I finally pulled the trigger for 3 of these on Amazon last night. I canceled that successfully. So you saved me close to $120, and to top it off I was finally able to use a Target gift card that was collecting dust. I was not able to take advantage of 2-day delivery for this product.

I had just finished doing some research here and there on air purifiers since spring started. Most people kept mentioning the 5300/5500-2, sounded like I couldn't go wrong. The 3rd party filters are fairly well-reviewed:

Quote from namlook :
Not sure why you would be vacuuming hepa filters when your other comments express concern about efficacy. Vacuuming can stress and damage the fibers of the filter. Much better to buy a new one if you want optimal results.

Hepa filter technology isn't rocket science. Third party ones are probably made in the same factories as the branded ones. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a third party filter myself unless there is real evidence they are inferior and not just supposition.
Vacuuming in normal circumstances is fine. Per the manual of any HEPA filter including this one. You're not removing pm25, you're removing larger fabric dust and hair which impede airflow.

The problem with the third party ones is generally that they use much less filter material both in terms of square footage, and density. Unless you take it to a lab and test it, you'll have a hard time actually knowing by how much. Those folds aren't just for design, it's to have the right amount of square footage to ensure optimal airflow relative to the static air pressure generated by the fan.

Yes, but you can buy the filters for 5300 which is cheaper.
Filter 5300 not fit this 5500-2 if you don't do some modifications. Not fit right out of the box

My wife bought four of these a few weeks ago and they're always running. No idea what they are for, but I'm hoping they are cheap to run. So what is the purpose of these things?

Thanks OP! I've been looking at this purifier for a couple weeks. I was able to use a 15% off home products Target Circle offer and paid just over $100.

Quote from namlook :
The only wifi issue I have had is there is sometimes a delayed response in the app registering a selection, but other than that the wifi has worked fine and it doesn't affect how well the filter actually works. Overall I find the wifi connectivity to be convenient and a nice feature. It also provides you a real time monitor of your air quality via a graph which is nice so you can see how air quality changed at various times of the day.
I just read the reviews and people complaint about the wifi so I did not purchase that model but I just purchased from Costco C555 yesterday 4-17-21 and that does not have Wifi.

This is one of the best air filter/purifier(s). I purchased one last year on April 15, 2020 from Amazon at $152.99 + TX. Perhaps, within a small bed room, I don't see the need for changing filter yet. I have just purchased one at this price from Target. Electronics' price really went up during pandemic.

In for 1 more. I like this air purifier the most out of my 4 purifiers. This one is the quietest and most efficient for the bedroom. I have a Honeywell Power Insight that covers 500 sq ft, but it's big, a germ guardian from Costco that barely covers a 200 sq ft office (this 5500 was much better in the office), a Bisell A320 that is good and powerful and covers 1000 sq ft, but kind of noisy (works in the family room / kitchen area), and a Brondell Pro Covid killer which is really good but cost $650 (for use at work). Out of all of them, this one is the best for the money, so for $118.50 and -5% for a Red Card, it's a no brainer.

A "washable" carbon filter sounds kind like a scam. I would love to see how it actually holds up to that claim in a lab.

Filter for this model is "pain in the a" expensive
Came to say this, I have this model and you can't find a generic filter. I would go with the Costco model which I believe take generic filters
